There's a man on the corner selling dozens of bones
Every type of bone except the one that I want
Ever think what your eyes do when you're trying to sleep
Or where your tongue rests is against your teeth

Now it's bigger than us, it's bigger than everything it tries to touch

Asleep is the safest place you can be
You can try hard to catch it, it just catches you
Imagine a camera coming up fromyour feet
Relax all your muscles son, just hope your heart's in one piece

Now it's bigger than us, bigger than everything i tries to touch
It's bigger than a halo, a devil, an angel and a crow

The bone's got the wrong detail I hoped it woud have
Save for a shinbone or even a hand

Such a lonely ride, such a lonely ride

The bone's got the wrong detail I hoped it would have for you
Save for a shinbone or even a hand
